Moving toward compassion

Co-author of Living with an Open Heart talks on cultivating compassion as part of the 2014 Young Adults Explore Buddhism program at Sravasti Abbey.

  • How to be compassionate
  • Misconceptions surrounding compassion that we have to be nice, soft, vulnerable and soft all the time
  • Willingness to come into contact with our suffering
  • We use anger not to feel other vulnerable feelings
  • Anger fuels the sense of discontent and creates mental habits
  • Breathing meditation as a training to notice threat emotions and cultivate safeness emotions
